The Ernest Borgnine Theatre is Long Beach’s premier medium-sized theatre. Constructed in the Renaissance style and housed within the Long Beach Scottish Rite Event Center, its décor is both timeless and elegant. It boasts an 800 seat capacity composed of both orchestra level seats and a balcony. There are over 70 hand-painted backdrops to choose from that were created in Hollywood in the 1920s. These backdrops have a wide array of themes so as to fit many different types of productions. Our sound system consists of a 36 channel sound board with the capability to use up to 16 wireless microphones.
